I mean, how do you justify charging men and women different prices.

Hey, I'm a man and I think it's a great idea. I'd gladly pay a little extra per jump to be at the DZ where the sky chicks are!! After all, it's $14 per jump, still a great deal!! I may have to visit this summer!!!

In all seriousness, not that the above is not true, but I believe a business owner has the right to run the business as he/she sees fit. If you don't like it, you have the option to go elsewhere, that's how the consumer gets their say. Of course a smart business owner is wary of consumer opinion and takes that into account, but I don't think this is really out of line. Just my .02.

$14 is pretty cheap. i think the fact that more girls will be there is a nice bonus.

I am personally insulted by this nig-noggery. There is NO justification for charging someone a lower price for their jump ticket just because they are a female. Would it be acceptable to say something like $10 jump ticket for someone of one race and $14 ticket for someone of another race? No way! Everyone would agree that is outright racist. In much the same way there is NO excuse for charging a different price for men and women. Women, how would you feel if it was a cheaper ticket for men? Men, how would you feel if it was a cheaper ticket for you?

I'm not just upset because it would cost me more. I would still have a problem if it was a cheaper ticket for guys.

This sort of double standard only leads to resentment and I am glad my dropzone is not trying something this ridiculous.

Wow,
I have never seen someone so upset about not being a woman!
Just kidding dude. Relax, it is an attempt to get people to their dropzone, you know, marketing.
I think it is a great idea and by the way I would love it if I had to pay less than the ladies.

Sounds like you've made your decision and won't be taking advantage of the $14 jump ticket on the plane full of women. Your choice. Hope you enjoy the $18 loads. Like I said, the business has choices and so does the consumer. I suppose you're offended by Ladies' Night at the clubs?

I (somewhat) understand your opinion, but this is marketing. The business is choosing a marketing population and hoping that their strategy will bring in the consumer base their looking for. If you don't like it, go elsewhere. Personally, I bet it works! I already want to go there, and I'm nowhere near there.

Blues,
Nathan

Not that I have a problem with the dz doing this, I think it's cool, but you cannot compare ladies night (ONE night) to an entire season of "ladies night".

There is a difference Smile

How is that any different then women being charged more for a haircut. Pretty much anywhere I have gotten my haircut it is at least $5-10 cheaper for men.

Anyway, I can't wait to go there. I was there for the Christmas party and it seems like it will be a great dz (though I only got to see it at night). I would go this weekend, but I have already signed up to do night jumps at my home dz. But maybe next weekend.

Just like clubs, some nights girls get in free.. I know a lot of dood who go there because the ladies are going to be everywhereWink

Also, $10 jump tickets is deff worth dressing in dragTongue

Cool

You don't see that the right way: it is not cheaper for the women, it is MORE EXPENSIVE for the guys, the right price for the women Tongue

Anyway, I think this is awesome. Erika and myself are going to drive those 4 hours each way just to be with you for the opening WE. We will be at the farm tonight with our tent and our XXL hammock!

See yall there

I completely agree. I wouldn't go somewhere if they charged me more for being female, so I wouldn't go somewhere where they charge me less. (No, I don't go to Ladies' Nights.)
